Summer Camps To Include Wheelchair Rugby Sessions

The Hull FC Community Foundation is delighted to be delivering three weeks of Wheelchair Rugby camps throughout the school summer holidays.

The Hull FC Community Foundation’s free summer camps for those in receipt of free school meals get underway later this month, thanks to funding from both the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council through the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) programme.

It’s a scheme funded by the Government and delivered by local councils across the summer, providing healthy food and fun activities to children and young people, with free meals available for those on free school meals.

In addition to a range of rugby and multi-skills camps that the Community Foundation will deliver this summer, there are also two weeks of Wheelchair Rugby camps lined up this August, allowing juniors to get a taste of the variation of the sport.

Many were inspired by the heroics of the England Wheelchair Rugby League team at the Wheelchair World Cup on British shores last year, with figures showing participation numbers for the sport are on the rise.

As such, the Community Foundation is working in collaboration with the Hull FC Wheelchair team to introduce local youngsters to Wheelchair Rugby League this summer, down at the University of Hull Allam Sports Centre, where the Black & Whites’ Wheelchair team play their home fixtures.

Wheelchair Rugby League camps begin on Tuesday 1st August, also running on Tuesday 8th and Tuesday 15th August (10am-1pm)
